Pizza in a tube

Not the London Underground

Since Pillsbury makes such an oh-so-wonderful pre-made breadish products in a tube, why not take it further? My proposal is for all ingredients for a pizza to be stored in a tube such that when squeezed results in an Italian treat*. First comes the dough in a fat lump. Pause to spread it out a bit. Squeeze again and the tomato sauce comes out. Squeeze a third time and the toppings (as mostly listed on the side of the tube) come spluttering out. Make sure to squeeze onto a pan or stone, not your counter top. Bake for 20 min at 190 (375F).

Or put the whole tube in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. Enjoy the resulting splatters as "Pizza Bites".

Bonus for this idea is that it takes less space in the freezer case and at home.

*A true Italian pizza shall never come in such a tube.

Calzone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calzone
Very nice [8th of 7, Oct 19 2009]

       If you created a large open space in a London Underground station and decorated in a neo-Italianate fashion, with cafes and things, would that be a Piazza In A Tube ?   

       You could probably make Calzone this way. <link>

       Points for dialling the synth. food concept up a notch. Deductions for coming up with something that sounds disgusting and would by definition be a single serving per tube. On balance, [-].

       // a single serving per tube //   

       Yes, but it could be quite a large tube .....

       I like the idea of a cyclindrical crust containing pizza goodness, inside a cardboard tube with a pushupable bottom. Then you could push up the pizza little by little as you ate it, minimizing mess. The tube would not be poisonous, in case you got overenthusiastic.

       Couple things. Firstly, I am pretty sure that the tubes used to house buiscuits and cinnamon rolls aren't squeeze tubes. As far as I know, there aren't any doughs that come in a squeeze tube. This isn't a real problem, just put this product in a tearaway tube. Also, those titles aren't immediately understandable, 21. I like his because it makes such a disgusting idea digestible ... anyways, how about a tear away tube with a stack of little pizzas in it?

       if the dough is wet, the yeast is busy making gas and your tube will explode. If there is no yeast, the dough is blah and I don't want it. if the dough is just flour and seasoning and you gotta add yeast and water and oil, it's too much work. -
